I want NO part of the Patriots. I think we could beat the Ravens with 2 weeks to prepare, on a neutral site this time. we know we could hang with them for 3 quarters on the road, short week. I really, really dont want to see how our D stacks up against the Patriots offensive machine. id rather pit mediocre O vs. mediocre O, and great D vs. great D, and see who comes out on top.
Regardless of how bad the NE defense is, anybody who actually prefers to play them is asking for a Super Bowl loss. youre insane. the matchup we want is clearly the Ravens. unfortunately im not sure BAL can beat NE.
You do know the Pats haven't beaten anybody this year?
Losses: BUF (when BUF was playing well), PIT, and NYG.
Wins: MIA, SD, OAK, NYJ, DAL, NYJ, KC, PHI, IND, WAS, DEN, MIA, BUF These are some seriously weak teams. The stronger teams in this list like DAL, NY barely scored 20 against.
NE average margin of victory vs the more solid teams on that entire list isn't very impressive. They've played DEN in the playoffs. Come on, they have far too many weaknesses.
